“Shamanism and the Bible: Is it Sorcery or Witchcraft?” excerpt from draft of “Meditate with me: The True Vine” a story of salvation from sorcery through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, written by Brian Cimins and Friends
Shamanism is a spiritual and cultural tradition that has been practiced by indigenous peoples around the world for thousands of years. It involves the use of spiritual practices and rituals to connect with the spirit world and seek guidance and healing. However, from a biblical perspective, shamanism is often considered to be a form of sorcery or witchcraft.
The Bible clearly condemns sorcery and witchcraft as evil practices that are associated with demonic powers. In Deuteronomy 18:10-12, the Israelites are warned against practicing sorcery or witchcraft, and in Leviticus 19:31, they are told not to turn to mediums or spiritists. In these passages, sorcery and witchcraft are seen as a form of rebellion against God and an attempt to gain power through supernatural means.
From a biblical perspective, shamanism is often considered to be a form of sorcery or witchcraft because it involves seeking guidance and healing through communication with spirits. The Bible teaches that all supernatural power and wisdom comes from God, and that seeking guidance from any other source is a form of rebellion against Him. In this sense, shamanism can be seen as an attempt to gain power and control over one’s life through supernatural means, which is a direct violation of God’s sovereignty and authority.
Another aspect of shamanism that is often considered to be sorcery or witchcraft from a biblical perspective is the use of psychoactive plants and substances in spiritual practices. In many indigenous cultures, these substances are used to induce trance states and facilitate communication with the spirit world. However, the Bible warns against the use of mind-altering substances in worship and spiritual practices, as they can lead to false beliefs and spiritual deception.
In conclusion, while shamanism is a rich and ancient spiritual tradition, it is seen as a form of sorcery or witchcraft from a biblical perspective. The Bible teaches that all supernatural power and wisdom comes from God, and that seeking guidance from any other source is a form of rebellion against Him. Additionally, the use of psychoactive substances in spiritual practices is seen as a violation of God’s instructions and can lead to false beliefs and spiritual deception.
Picture Notes: Snakes appear several times in the Bible, most notably in the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. In this story, a serpent tempts Eve to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, leading to the downfall of humanity. The Bible also mentions snakes as symbols of evil and danger, such as the serpent that Moses lifted up to heal the Israelites of their snake bites. In other parts of the Bible, snakes are seen as objects of power and divinity, such as when Aaron’s staff turns into a snake in front of Pharaoh. Additionally, the Bible contains instructions on how to deal with venomous snakes and protect against their bites. Snakes are thus portrayed in the Bible as both a symbol of temptation and evil, and a symbol of divine power and protection.
Help someone in #ThisSeason to Glorify God! Allow me to testify,
Last season, we were truly In the #ValleyOfTheShadowOfDeath and or the #DarkNightOfTheSoul, “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Late in 2019, after building the recording studio of our family’s dreams coupled with a simple lighting system and 4K camera, the filming studio to create fun original content remastered ALL our original master footage free to the world which at: http://LiveGrappling.com as well as use the recording studio for musical projects, Podcasts and book readings plus projects around the world at http://YourStrategyCoach.com – in one DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, we lost nearly everything we owned, but it wasn’t the first tribulation we’ve ever faced.
He has walked with us through other valleys of the shadow of death, He will never leave us nor forsake us. The few things that really kept us together, most importantly our faith in Jesus Christ for “He restores my soul”, our amazing family, my hard working wife, our beautiful children, our super supportive family, but don’t we always expect the type of support and loving kindness from people closest, we even take them for granted. I thank them for always being there since I was little, they guided me to Jesus by example their whole life. What floored me was who would otherwise without Jesus, be strangers, my brothers and sisters in Christ assembled at our home weekend after weekend to rebuild our home, it was a beautiful testimony to the love of Jesus Christ, the church is a people, never a place.
He said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Life will have tribulation, He told us we would, what we experienced at the greatest loss of our lives was we would personally experience so much love from the Savior of the World, through His church and in the process truly develop a relationship with Jesus ourselves.
In the Bible, the church (always a people never a place) helped rebuild mostly our entire home, donated furniture and office chairs, even helped buy us a new computer and microphones to help us #GetBackUp,. #Depression is a very real and dangerous thing and a decade ago without Jesus, I never would have made it, thank you ALL who helped and supported us, the hands and feet, the body of Christ, the bridegroom is assembled and beautifully serving in secret in loving kindness and all over the world. He is coming soon enough.
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Please know I truly love you as brothers and sisters, but needed to make a video to remind anyone suffering with ANY trials or tribulations in life to #NeverGiveUp and know if you know Him you’ve already won. We have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, the penalty of sin is death, the Isaiah 53 prophesied messiah & savior of the world, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, Jesus Christ came to earth to DIE for you and my sins, the penalty of sin is death and those dead in their sin who reject the gift of grace from the eternal wrath we deserve, it’s is by His Grace through faith we are saved, not of our works for God knew we would boast.
Thank you for the challenges and blessings in life and all of the beautiful people made in the image of God who’ve we’ve been blessed with encountering here while on earth. Life is a vapor, your soul is immortal and eternity is forever with God in heaven, or in eternal conscious torment and endless punishment in a lake of fire, by suffering the the exact same problem Lucifer had: PRIDE. That’s the first sin, to humbly come to the creator of the world and ask for forgiveness, to truly understand what we’ve done in front of a perfect and Holy God. Know I loved you enough to tell you the truth and if Grapplers Quest ever relaunches ALL OF THE GLORY WILL GO TO GOD.
Join me and Repent of your sin and Trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. Please Never consider suicide, it’s just not an option, I’ve counseled brothers in Christ who tried to commit suicide, but because of God’s Grace, they kept him alive, maybe just to hear the gospel of Jesus at Kessler Institute. Please God can renew your mind, give you strength and give you a new heart, most importantly He is the Way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Him. Finish the race, forgive one another, be slow to anger, quick to forgive because that’s the way He taught us to live.
Thank you for the loving and kind messages, thoughts and prayers, texts and gifts, it touched our hearts deeply. If you want to support us in any way as we fully recover, please be encouraged to support what our family has produced these last five years as God healed and restored our family too. He is THAT good, repent and trust in Him alone for salvation. God bless you and your family always and forever in Jesus’ name
Your brother in Christ, Brian Cimins

Special thank you to the animated text videographer I worked with to created this back in 2014 for re-sending the original. When it was DELETED off our “Your Strategy Coach” channel deleted back in March 2019, we realized the digital persecution of the truth of Jesus Christ had begun, a digital purge, without explanation or even a warning.
I messaged the guy who helped created it and we re-downloaded to publish 6 years laer, please share worldwide. Please download and share this video worldwide, it was meant to be a tool to be used, we are in the hands of the redeemer, so no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
This was a fun Bible basics tool to teach children and adults, from special needs to child prodigies the law of Moses and other important Bible studies for home schooling projects and introduction to biblical truth for home ministries and start-up youth ministries throughout America. Please use it in any and every way it’s intended to share the Word of God with the world for free in another format that might better engage some of the distracted youth in this day and age. I was one of them, please forgive me Mom and Dad.
Please download and share worldwide and feel free to record YOUR own voice with and or without your family using the screen overlay to share God’s word with those you love. The law perfectly convicts the heart, it shows the world we’ve ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Many of our loved ones have NO IDEA they are headed to a lake of fire without a savior, because the penalty of sin is DEATH. Jesus Christ came to earth to live a perfect life and be the lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. He died for YOUR and MY sins too, His sacrifice on the cross paid the penalty of sin, as He said, “It is finished”. We are called to repent and trust in Christ alone for Salvation
Exodus 20:1-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Ten Commandments
20 Then God spoke all these words, saying,
2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of [a]slavery.
3 “You shall have no other gods [b]before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself [c]an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not [d]leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.
8 “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who [e]stays with you. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

December 1, 2019 – Wayne, New Jersey – Music Label, Meditation Orchestra is excited to release it’s 17th album with “The Best of Meditate with Me”, a 15-Track audiobook, meditation and musical album by Brian Cimins including a compilation of Meditation based Audiobooks, Guided Meditations and Relaxing Music.
Meditate With Me is a family parable book series and Christian outreach campaign to reach the lost sheep from various remote regions, villages, and far-off lands who are possibly studying false religions, witchcraft, sorcery, and other New Age disinformation around the world.
First Peter 5:8 reads, “Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Pastor Andrew Rappaport of Striving for Eternity Ministries said it best: “Evil is the absence of good, and good is defined by the nature of God.”
This book series will teach children the attributes of God, basic apologetics, and ultimately how to put our full faith in Jesus, how to pray and meditate day and night, how to put on the full armor of God, and other Bible-based life skill lessons to support their lifelong faith-building efforts to face the enemy with Christ alone to glorify God through our lives.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us to reach all people in all nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life, the only way to the Father, the only way to heaven, and in many countries Christians are being persecuted and blocked from sharing the Gospel.
The Quest to Christ is the first edition of the series and joins two siblings raised Buddhist, Yui and Mei, escaping from Chinese-invaded Tibet. They face death-defying winter storms in the mountains of India in a tribulation-filled journey to find God, meet a wonderful missionary, conquer their fears, and learn about salvation through Jesus Christ. They learn we are saved by his grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, not because of our works. The series also teaches how to ask God for forgiveness, how to repent or turn away from sin, and how to pray in Jesus’ name as well as how to accurately practice Bible-based Christian meditation day and night.

Matthew 5King James Version (KJV or King James Version)
1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Back in 2010, while researching the benefits of supposed “sound healing”, our family started sampling and playing new musical instruments.
We came across these “crystal singing bowls” and after practicing, Lucia and the kids performed and we recorded with 3 microphones to “studio record” ALL of the bowls playing at once and individually, plus just have a little fun. A few months later, I added this recording as a Bonus Track to an Buddhist Monks and “spiritual seekers” outreach to introduce the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of people worldwide started downloading our music, “borrowing” it for YouTube projects and other flattering usages. At the same time, we also started our venture into singles and albums consumer direct marketing and promotional campaigns on all social media mediums, but found YouTube to be one of the best platforms for millions of amazing listeners for free. We made 1000 times more from people stealing our spoken word and music compared and monetizing to how many people ever bought one album or single. Why? Because we claimed nearly 100,000,000 videos with more than 1 Billion views with 100 tracks we created…we were BLOWN away at how many videos were using our “Meditation Music”.
Back in March of 2019, our main “Your Strategy Coach” YouTube channel receiving millions of views per month and just 2,200 subscribers, sharing positive messages, projects, charities and even home movies that was sending me 5-10 business coaching clients per month was gone. We have reached out to YouTube without response and fully support The President’s Anti-Censorship pursuits against digital giants such as Google, Twitter and Facebook.
Our audio and visual productions of videos of speeches, poetry or sound work never received the Lionshare of views on YouTube. In fact, some very well known producers of Motivational and Inspirational video channels all started sampling. Others would create AMAZING visual representations to express visually what we wrote or produced. It was flattering, but there were YouTube channels generating $10,000+ per month on using our work without even acknowledging the author or producer. Frustrating and perplexing…so rather than complain, we sought out to solve the “audio theft” problem of the music industry…and CRUSHED IT!
It taught us some challenging lessons, realizations of potential millions in stolen usage, but without the knowledge of our artist rights, we wouldn’t have ever generated a dime. We learned the lesson through the struggle, ALL THE GLORY TO GOD for my knowledge of music production, artist management and copyright law were able to generate and recover nearly ALL monetized views and usage worldwide.
We learned through great trials and tribulations including the theft of our original works “More Was Never Enough” by some Muslim DJ from Texas to create EDM/Dance music for TikTok and Commercials all over Asia. There are many “DJs” doing this on YouTube and then selling internationally without ANY of the licensing rights or proper partnerships, it’s not the way. Honesty, integrity, fair compensation and transparency are invaluable in business relationships and these business deals can never begin with theft.
I will say that my lesson for NOT protecting our music, turned me into Jerry Maguire for our 120 tracks and 20+ albums (and growing, see NEW RELEASE below) with 5 sources of revenue rather than 1-2 which the Tunecore’s of the world offered. Several years went by and nothing, but once I became an ASCAP Artist and Management Label, we found literally millions of videos, views, plays and outright theft recovery and finally started getting paid!
One of the recent surprise blessings (all the glory to God) came in from ASCAP from “Orquestra Antiga De Meditação” recording used in Brazil on a Portuguese Health, Family and Fitness network television show!
Because of the amazing amount of comments, messages requesting to download the original tracks, we have re-released the original album in Portuguese with a copy of the Gospel of John which best explains “Jesus is the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God”, our savior and redeemer.
Please sample and download “Orquestra Antiga De Meditação” worldwide at:
Please consider any sales as direct support for our Christian Outreach campaigns. We must trust that the Word of God converts souls as the Bible says, so sharing the Good News and Gospel of Jesus Christ with the World is what we were commanded to do. If one person gets to hear the gospel in Brazil due to searching for our album from being featured on TV, all the glory to God.
Since we found that every single one of our tracks gets stolen and uploaded to millions of dark websites around the world, we always add the Gospel to nearly every album we release to ensure that even in their theft and assisting others to steal, God is glorified, hopefully they will ALL repent and trust in Him alone, for we have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Seeking the lost requires us sometimes to leave the 99…
Ezekiel’s prophecy states, “blessed are you and blessed are your children and blessed are the eyes that so see” and again in the Book of Solomon, the richest man that ever lived, “blessed is the eye that sees and the ear that hears, and the heart that understands, and causes to understand, the wisdom of it.”
The Book of Romans sums it up best, “We have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” and “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”.
Jesus became the perpetual payment for sin when He died on the cross to those who repent and trust in Him. He rose again proving He was God. He fulfilled the Old Testament prophecy in Isaiah 53 written 700 years before Christ came to earth about Him coming as Messiah perfectly.
If you know any Jewish friends, please ask them to take a second look at Isaiah Fifty Three which reads,
“But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.
By oppression and judgment He was taken away;
And as for His generation, who considered
That He was cut off out of the land of the living
For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
His grave was assigned with wicked men,
Yet He was with a rich man in His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
But the Lord was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see His offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
As a result of the anguish of His soul,
He will see it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One,
My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.
Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,
And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors.”
Jesus said, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.”
We are saved by His grace through faith alone. True Love requires truth and I truly LOVE YOU and if you are hearing this, this Good News of the Gospel of Jesus is for YOU too, we ALL need a savior in Him.
160,000 people die every day and many are on the path to eternal destruction for the penalty of sin is death. No one is perfect, but Jesus was the Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. Repent of your sin and Trust in Jesus alone for salvation
He will restore your soul, He will grant you eternal life, He is the way, the truth and the LIFE, seek Him, as He is seeking you.
